Edinburgh Science Festival Delegate Programme

Explore behind-the-scenes of a world-renowned Science Festival with the EdSciFest Delegate Programme. After a successful pilot year in 2019, we’ve enriched the Programme and expanded it even further to include more events, discussions and networking packed into the three-day schedule.

Perfect for anyone who works in science engagement, the Programme delves into the inner workings of the Festival, exploring how we create and curate events, market and fundraise the breadth of the programme and bring science to life in all environments. Delegates will have the opportunity to develop and build on their own science public engagement skills, meet like-minded peers and explore opportunities for future collaboration all while experiencing the excitement of the Festival.

New for 2020 the Delegate Programme will also feature a day specially designed for teachers, youth workers and anyone working within an education setting to improve skills and confidence in delivering science to different groups. The day will consist of professional learning, interdisciplinary opportunities across the curriculum and networking with STEM and education colleagues. 


DATES: Wednesday 15 – Friday 17 April 2020
LOCATION: Edinburgh, various venues
TICKETS: Purchase either three-day or one-day tickets from January
